AWIS Weather Advisory: Frost Protection Needed Tonight
Dear Strawberry Community,
We are expecting low temperatures this night and clear skies, a perfect mixture for frost. In some areas we expect close to 30F minimum air-temperature (see Figure 1).
You need to cover your strawberry crop or use any other frost protection tonight.
Figure 1: Minimum Temperatures for Saturday morning. Most of NC will be below 40 F. Data provided by Agriculture Weather Information Services (AWIS).
Temperatures will rise again during Saturday, so you can uncover on Saturday or latest Sunday again. Don’t leave covers on for too long, due to disease and pollination issues!
See here your local weather forecasts. Please visit Agriculture Weather Information Services (AWIS) for more information!
As always, I hope this helps. Please stay safe,
